Back Pain After an Auto Collision

Why is back pain such a common condition after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you recover?

Let's look at the root cause of back pain after an accident and see how chiropractic care can help.

During a rear-end auto collision, your car and car seat are quickly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curve of your back, the seat can put uneven force on your back. This can cause some of your spinal vertebrae to move in one direction while an adjacent vertebrae might move in another direction. This differential motion can sprain or strain the structures that hold your spine together. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain if not treated right away. Fortunately, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

You don't have to suffer from back pain. Jefferson Spine & Injury Center is conveniently located in Arlington to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not. First, we'll do a careful examination to determine the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
